Further, there's plenty of places to stay both within the park, and just outside. Each campsite or inn has it's own unique feel and pluses. For a more close-to-nature experiance, Curry Village is a good choice for getting out there while having some home comforts around. For a hotel with entertainment, comfort, and a continuing rustic tone, the Ahwahnee Hotel is the place to stay. There's a myriad of other options too, as Yosemite is no stranger to the wishes of different visitors.
*Please note that campers are not to set up camp outside of designated areas; furthermore, some campgrounds require reservations, so check with park guidelines before arrival.*
